Tiafoe positive for coronavirus: drop at Atlanta exhibition

American tennis player Frances Tiafoe tested positive for coronavirus, causing loss in Atlanta exhibition tournament “All-American Team Cup”. The organization confirmed that Tiafoe, who made his victory with his compatriot Sam Querrey on Friday, began to show symptoms after that encounter so he underwent a test. He had tested negative on arrival in Atlanta, but his positive for coronavirus was detected in this last sample.

Tiafoe will no longer participate in this exhibition event and his replacement will be Christopher Eubanks., as announced by the director of the “All-American Team Cup”, Eddie Gonzalez. Frances Tiafoe explained in her Instagram profile that she will continue the quarantine under medical supervision in Atlanta, where she traveled a week ago from Florida, without symptoms and after having tested negative in a previous test. Once the positive of the American tennis player was detected, the organization of the “All-American Team Cup” began disinfecting the facilities and activated the tracking protocols. In principle, the tournament continues. It must be remembered that in addition to Tiafoe and Querrey there are also other great names in American tennis such as John Isner, Steve Johnson, or Taylor Fritz.
